Membership Benefits

Membership - what do you get as a member?

Everyone on the web has access to some of the OWA benefits:

  • Newsletter with member articles and news.
  • Calendar of public events, upcoming shows, competitions, conferences.

But only members get access to:

  • Annual Retreat:  Held in Sonoma County in the fall, the OWA Retreat is a chance for members old and new to reconnect, restore, and revitalize the spirit.
  • Holiday Giving Party:  Each year we have a potluck to celebrate the year and collect donations for a worthy cause.
  • Forum posting access for members-only topics.
  • Member Directory containing professional information and interests for most OWA members.
  • Health Plan: OWA offers a Health Care Plan for its members.

  • Portfolio where members can share up to 20 images of their work.
  • Resource Page for women in the design professions.
  • And most importantly, the camaraderie and support of hundreds of other design professionals. For this alone, joining is worthwhile!
